Photo Trip – Syrian Arab Republic #1

April 14, 2010

Basically it’s a hell of a mission connecting to the internet when you are traveling rudimentary in Syria. But eventually we managed to sneak into an open WLAN in Hama, our second stop after the last two days spending in the capital of Syria, Damascus, the eldest inhabitant city of the world. And you can feel and anticipate the age and tradition sparkling out of the rugged buildings. The people are one of the friendliest I’ve ever met – open-minded and interested in foreign culture and humans. Coincidentally we already met two journalists who gave us a bit of an impetus in syrian history. Well, a bit of a downside: facebook and other social networks are filtered and not accessible here in Hama…hm…we’ve to respect that…for sure!
